to senator susan collins, she didn't get the answers that she was looking for. she said she still has a lot of unanswered questions. it's really important to understand how significant susan collins is in this potential process. she isn't nominated for secretary of state, nobody is, but she's still considered to be a leading contender and that's part of the reason why she's been coming up in a really unusual way, frankly, making the rounds and trying to effectively lobby senators that she didn't do anything that wrong even before she's nominated. but the reason why susan collins is so important, she's one of the few remaining moderate republicans left. if susan rice is nominated to be secretary of state and other republicans make good on their promise to block her, susan collins would be a critical voice. the fact that she says she's still troubled is bad, bad news. i asked her how she would vote if sherp to vote right now. take a listen. >> need to have additional information before i could support her nomination. she's not been posted yet. our homeland security committee investigation is

york times" and in an interview with senator susan collins of maine, a moderate voice on the republican site of the aisle expresses some misgivings about ambassador rice, which is a real, i would think, danger sign for her -- >> listen, the president is going to get the secretary of state that he wants. if he wants susan rice, other republicans are going to do is waste a lot of time and effort and in the last -- in the last -- they know something that nobody else knows that susan rice was deliberately cooking the books but when she has the intel community sitting next to her saying this is what we'll let you say, i think she's pretty good shape. >> i think that's true and also making her -- putting the president in a corner from which it's almost impossible for him not to nominate her but wants her to be secretary of state -- look at all the signs, he seems to be leaning in her direction for awhile but now in this position if he doesn't nominate her, he's backing down in the face of what seems to be largely a political and unfounded opposition to her. it seems to me like they're making

-11 and the face of terror is changing and republican susan colli collins, says the identification of the 2009 shooting at fort hood texas as workplace violence is one reason that law enforcement agents nationwide are not properly learning who they should be on the lookout for. to counter this threat to better understand its roots and how it may develop among certain people in our own country, we have to be willing to name the threat to understand it in order to counter it. >> the gao report says plainly that misinformation about the threat and dynamics of radicalization for violence can harm security by sending local stake holders in the wrong direction and unnecessarily creating tensions with potential community partners. but, there is a bright spot and the gao report, the holm secured department is noted as effectively identifying and communicating to their partners, the elements that their training on countering violence extremism programs should cover. rick? >> peter doocy in washington, thanks so much. >> well, the holiday shopping season is in full swing this small business saturday. ne
